As I explore new techniques in knitting, my posts are happening less frequent. The more involved the project, the longer between posts. My most recent endeavor forced me into learning short-row shaping.
Breathing Space, designed by Veera Valimaki is a true commitment to knitting. Knitting stripes combined with short-row shaping creates an interesting asymmetrical hemline. The pattern is well-written and fits like a dream.
Another project I’ve completed is inspired by an image I captured on my local hiking trail. The local landscape has changed quite a bit due to the flooding California experienced this Winter. Trees have toppled and the power of gushing water forcing its way through our creeks and dams, has altered the topography.
The pattern stitch paired with Zealana Rimu creates a beautiful sculptural piece of knitting.
Wrapped In Ripples is inspired by my photo, Ripples In The Sand.
